The Force Behind the Lift - Meet Matt Barron

A look at the people that make Rotary Lift

Today we're speaking with Matt Barron, product consultant with Rotary Lift.


In less than a year Matt has become an integral part of our RAI Training classes. Last month he was tasked with setting up and running the 3 day class sessions. As you would expect everything went off with out a hitch. Matt has been a valuable addition to our team and we are sure that any of you that have spoken with him would agree. Now we will take a few minutes to get to know Matt a little better. Enjoy!

Q:  How long have you been with Rotary Lift? 

Matt:  I started in August of 2013. So, nearly 1 year.

Q:  What do you enjoy about your job?

Matt: I really enjoy the people I work with at Rotary Lift / VSG. I also enjoy the satisfaction I get when I have helped an Installer overcome a challenge.

Q:  What’s your favorite part of RAI Training class?

Matt:  I enjoy sharing knowledge with RAI’s and I like being able to interact with them in person. In June I facilitated the RAI training which allowed me to spend a lot of time with the class and I gained a new perspective into the planning and preparation leading up to that session.  

Q:  How many calls do you handle in a day and what do those calls consist of?

Matt: Every day is different. Some days I may take more than 50 calls and other days I might be working on projects away from the desk.  Calls range from technical troubleshooting to helping a potential customer identify the lift that is right for them. Every call is different and some can be very challenging.

Q:  What is one fun fact about you that people may not know?

Matt: I love to travel and explore. I have hiked up three volcanoes so far and now my wife and I are planning trip to Machu Picchu in the fall.

Q:  What do you enjoy doing in your time away from work?

Matt: I like to hike, work outside and ride horses with my wife, Joy. I also enjoy running long distance and I would like to run a marathon next year.    

Q:  If you purchased one Rotary Lift product what would it be, and why?

Matt: An SPO12 Shockwave because it’s capacity would allow me to service all of my vehicles. It would have to red because I love Indiana University.
